View Full Version : Urban Cowboy

I was surfing TV channels and watched a bit of the movie Urban Cowboy. That's when I saw something bizarre. It was Debra Winger riding an invisible mechanical bull. There she was in hanging in mid-air, writhing around with nothing between her legs. I guess the WE channel thought it too riskee to show a woman provacatively riding a mechanical bull, so they erased it.

Did I really see that? It's too weird to be true. But I think so.

Have they gone too far? OK. The bull riding scene is essential to the plot and was included without the bull. Good comprimise, I suppose. But it still bugs me.

It seems like I'm flip/flopping from my Superbowl post. It's a kind of a subjective thing. But, sometimes, I think censorship goes too far.

I taped the movie to see for sure.

My apologies. I was wrong. The bull was cut away while Debra Winger was standing on it.

BUT.. I still have problems with criteria for censorship. Is this an American thing? In the movie, you see a person grabbing another's ***, but the word "***" is bleeped out.
